Thai Orchid serves probably the best Thai food I've ever had. I've eaten in Thai restaurants in San Francisco and New York that charge twice as much and they don't hold a candle to the flavors in the food here. The Green Curry Chicken has exactly the right combination of sweetness and spice that most Thai restaurants only dream of achieving and the Pad Gra Prow is simply awesome. The chef/owner is always there and always comes out to ask how your meal was. A touch a really appreciate. If you like your food spicier, ask him for the fresh hot chilis he keeps in the kitchen. The lunch special is probably the best deal in town - two dishes, rice and a salad for under $8.00.

Fantastic food everytime I go. Without question if my wife even hints of going out to dinner this is a top choice. Enjoy the small atmosphere where others may be not so impressed just come and enjoy some of the best Thai ever period. The chef is one time said hello and asked that he surprise us and it was so amazing.
Recently did take out and again was not only impressed but it seemed even better at home - AMAZING. Massaman Curry is a good start if your first time.

This is hands down my favorite Thai Food restaurant in Salt Lake City. It is a very small, family owned and operated operation in a strip mall with great atmosphere and authentic dishes. The Massaman Curry is my personal favorite. The owner/chef is is very personable and and comes out to make sure everything was to your satisfaction. It has lost some of its personality since he lost his wife to Cancer (she was a delight), but you still get the sense you are dining in a Thai home atmosphere with a very gracious host. Its out of the way, but its near the ski areas and worth taking the time to find.

The Thai Orchid restaurant is in a strip mall, but the quality of the food is EXCELLENT. It is well worth the search to find it!!!

The owner/chef makes each entree' individually, so your meal is unique, just to you. No production line dinners. He also will come to your table to be certain that everything is to your satisfaction.

This is one of the best, if not THE best, Thai restaurants in Salt Lake City. It is a secret that the locals know about and the reputation is growing.

Been here several times with family and friends and it has been okay, this time it was av erage at best. Pad Thai was aweful. Prices are decent but food was not. I had a veggie dish that smelled funny...may of been the oyster sauce....Nice people running the place but i can't deny the food was not that great. Nothing seemed fresh. I usally go with 6 to 8 people and no one was impressed that evening.
